Americans Don't Speed?

I was reading this article in the NY Times about English hatred of cameras that have been posted all over the place to catch speed when I came on this quote that I had to share:
“It’s incredibly difficult to get to people to come to terms with slowing down here,” said Francis Ashton, the road safety manager for the city of Nottingham. “In the States, you have much slower speed limits, and there’s more of a culture of sticking to the speed limit.”
Either Mr. Francis hasn't spent much time on our interstate highway system, or we're really not as bad as I thought. Huh.

Mr. Ashton is quite daft. Not only do we have higher speed limits in parts of the US (up to 80) than they do in the UK, but we Americans love to drive as fast as we can, particularly when the highway is wide open. I imagine we could compare the average speed of US drivers on the interstate with British ones on the motorways to determine who drives faster, but even without doing so, I assue you that his claim is simply wrong. And they drive on the wrong side of the road.
